Barbara Gelb, Chief Executive of Together for Short Lives comments, “We are delighted to be the chosen charity for the Kapow! auction. Kapow! took place during Children’s Hospice Week, our annual fundraising and awareness week which culminated in a superhero Friday where we are ask that people dress up as their favourite superhero. Given that some of the world’s best known comic illustrators have drawn hero characters for the auction, the timing of this partnership couldn’t be better.”

She continues, “The money raised at the auction will go towards helping ensure that families make the most of the precious time they have together.”
